| Smaller conduits carrying lava into a larger
passage often seal off completely as the lava cools, if they haven't drained
completely. In some cases a seal may form when breakdown
blocks a passage and the flow is insufficient to overflow or carry off
In the photo below, it appears that at least four different flows were carried through an infeeding conduit before it sealed completely.
